    Viewing your photos on a map

    If you enable location detection when taking photos, you can use the information gathered at a later stage. For example, you can view your photos on a map and show friends and family where you were when you took the photo. Adding location information is also referred to as geotagging. When you enable location detection, you can select to use either GPS satellites or wireless networks, or both, to find your position.
